Speaking when he inspected fertilizer depots in Chongwe district today, Mr. Mwakalombe urged farmers in the area to rise to the occasion by producing a bumper harvest in the forth coming farming season.
He also implored the cooperative society within the District to work closely with government officers to produce more food for Chongwe and the entire country.
And Zambia Cooperative Federation Director general James Chirwa said early distribution of inputs has helped farmers to strategically plan before the onset of the runs.
